Watch the commuter 2018 full movie online. This is one of those moral conundrums that really only generates suspense if you believe that a working class hero who radiates decency would condemn another person to death for $100,000. Nevertheless, Neeson goes the extra kilometer trying to sell us on the character’s economic desperation as well as his macho pride (Michael couldn’t bring himself to tell his wife and kids that he just got fired, so there’s pressure to make this right immediately so he’ll never have to spill the truth).
Director Collet-Serra, who did the mostly terrific shark thriller “The Shallows” and seems to have a knack for stripped-down, goal-directed action flicks, has clearly absorbed Alfred Hitchcock films where the action occurs on the boundary separating the real from the metaphorical or dreamlike. The kaleidoscope of humanity that Michael meets on the train is a touch of “Rear Window,” the arrangement between him and Farmiga’s character is a faint echo of “Strangers on a Train,” and there’s a hint of “North by Northwest” in the notion of a (mostly) ordinary New Yorker getting pulled into a conspiracy and struggling to regain control over his life. In the end, though, this is a tweedy suburban version of a confined-space action flick. Michael is on his own the whole time. Any allies he picks up along the way are temporary, and not all can be trusted.
A businessman on his daily commute home gets unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy that threatens not only his life but the lives of those around him.
